These very high resolution images show a global view of the Earth at different orientations with Arctic sea ice on December 8,2008 and September 15, 2008. The extent of the sea ice was determined by the AMSR-E sea ice concentration data. The terrain shows the average land cover for the related months over the continents. (See <a href="http://www.nasa.gov/vision/earth/features/blue_marble.html">Blue Marble Next Generation</a>) The global cloud cover shown...

STS100-390-021 (28 April 2001) --- Astronauts James S. Voss and Susan J. Helms work at the controls of the new Canadian-built space station robotic arm as a historic "first" takes place in Earth orbit. The robotics "handshake in space" occurred as the Canadarm2 transferred its launch cradle over to Endeavour's Canadian-built remote manipulator system (RMS) robotic arm, with astronaut Chris A. Hadfield, mission specialist representing the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), at the... Topic: What -- Earth Source: http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/gallery/images/station/crew-2/html/sts100-390-021.html
ER-2 tail number 706, is one of two Airborne Science ER-2s used as science platforms by Dryden. The aircraft are platforms for a variety of high-altitude science missions flown over various parts of the world. They are also used for earth science and atmospheric sensor research and development, satellite calibration and data validation. The ER-2s are capable of carrying a maximum payload of 2,600 pounds of experiments in a nose bay, the main equipment bay behind the cockpit, two wing-mounted...

Television viewers saw this picture of the earth during the sixth live telecast from the Apollo 8 spacecraft as it continued its journey home. At the time this picture was made, the Apollo 8 spacecraft taken at 97,000 nautical miles from earth, and was traveling at a speed of 6,084 feet per second. As the spacecraft continued its transearth course, the Apollo 8 crew noted that the ''Earth was getting larger'' and that they were looking forward to being home. 1.
